Chelsea players celebrate goal against Newcastle

Chelsea beat Newcastle United 2-0 on Saturday to move top of the Premier League for the first time under Frank Lampard, for a few hours at least.

Federico Fernandez’s early own goal gave Chelsea the lead at St. James’ Park before Timo Werner’s stunning assist set up Tammy Abraham to seal the points midway through the second half.

Chelsea’s fifth consecutive victory extends their unbeaten run in all competitions to 12 games and lifts them above Leicester into top spot on goal difference ahead of the rest of the weekend’s fixtures. Newcastle remain 13th.
